Lot 524 Larchmont Yacht Club
10 Year 5.5% $250 Gold Debenture specimen, New York, 1926
Founded in 1880, the club has hosted since 1885 the yearly Larchmont Race Week, 
an event featuring hundreds of boats competing and racing in Long Island Sound. 
The certificate's photo vignette shows the 1917 Larchmont Yacht Club’s flagship VARUNA.
It was the first yacht fitted out with the (Guglielmo) Marconi rig. The Varuna proved 
that the Marconi rig was the fastest. Because of the physics of how force is generated by 
wind blowing past a sail, tall thin sails give better performance upwind.
